what the impact of the sequestration is going to be on the budget. the department of defense, because we've had no budget out of harry reid and the democrats on the senate side for four years, we've been operating on continuing resolutions. when you have continuing resolution that takes the previous year funding levels and you have to request changes. frankly it's cost the american taxpayer hundreds of millions of dollars and had an impact but it belongs on harry reid's seat. >> neil: commander. thank you. i think harry reid needs lanny davis, five rules with coping for crisis in business, politics and life. among them is talking straight, right? >> harry reid has a very good heart and i am sorry that the commander jumps to impugning motives rather than disagreeing with the way senator reid did it. i would call it a gaffe. >> neil: you think he was making an incorrect link? >> i don't think he meant to. he's too good of a man. >> neil: he mentioned it in the context of the soldiers and -- not good and crisis management rule number 1 is when you make a mistake, you immediately say i di

the first line of defense, i mean, i think we have sort of a tripartide line of defense. we start off with very expensive and sophisticated monitoring at a much higher level and much more comprehensively than we've had in the past. then we have supervisionary regulation, where we work with other agencies to try to cover all the empty or uncovered areas in the financial system. and then in addition, we try to use communication and similar tool s tools to effect the way that financial markets respond to monetary policy. so we do have some first lines of defense, which i think should be used first. that being said, you know, i think that given the problems that we've had, not just in the united states, but globally, in the last 15, 20 years, that we need to at least take into account these issues, as we make monetary policy. and i think most people would agree with that. what that means, exactly, depends on the circumstances. i think if the economy is in very weak condition and interest rates are very low for that purpose, it's very difficult to contemplate raising rates a lot, because y
administration has provided, including iron dome, including defense funding for israel during very difficult times, he has announced that we are going to begin talks on another ten-year process, arrangement, to ensure american military assistance to israel. i think this is very significant. and i want to express my thanks for everything that you have done and i want to thank you also for that statement you just made. i think it is very, very important. so i think israelis will judge this by the unfolding event and by what is happening. what is actually taking place. and for this, you know, there is a simple answer for your question. the gentlemen from nbc. see, a another term as president and another term as prime minister. that fixes things. >> thank you very much, everybody. >> president obama and israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu just wrapping up their pros conference in jerusalem. let's get right to andrea mitchell who is there with more on what with we just heard. andrea, lots of ground covered today. >> a lot of ground covered. i think what you saw at the end there was the begi

: calendar number 21, h.r. 933, an act making appropriations for the department of defense, the department of veterans affairs, and other departments and agencies for the fiscal year ending september 30, 2013, and for other purposes. the presiding officer: the majority leader. mr. reid: following leader remarks, the senate will resume consideration of the continuing appropriations legislation. the time until 11:15 today will be divided and controlled equally between the two leaders or their designees. then at 11:15, there will be three roll call votes in relation to the continuing resolution -- toomey amendment, which is a 60-vote threshold, adoption of the mikulski-shelby-mikulski substitute amendment and cloture vote on h.r. 933, the underlying bill. mr. president, for the last few years, our republican colleagues have been hollering and yelling and screaming that the senate hasn't passed a budget. they have done so in spite of the fact that republicans in both chambers voted for the budget control act which sets spending levels for the last two years. it was a law. every reasonable poli
, that is a u.s.-funded missile defense system that was very successful during the gaza war, something the israelis want to show off and they feel shows u.s.-israeli military cooperation and shows the united states a little bit of what it gets for its $3 billion in aid here to israel. the president obviously is meeting with leaders while he's here. he's also speaking directly to the israeli people who do not have a great approval rating for him. a recent poll in israel showed only 10% of israelis said they liked president obama. about another 30% said they didn't necessarily like him but they at least respected him. in this speech he is going to give to about 1,000 college students is designed to speak directly to the israeli population to see if he can't convince the israeli population that he's right that america has their back, and perhaps that can get more movement out of prime minister netanyahu if president obama is able to rally support from the israeli people themselves. >>brian: here's the unscripted part. the story yesterday about syria possibly using poisonous gas, poisonous
the republicans, scrambling to do away with cuts to defense, i will not accept that reid said, my people in the state of nevada and the country have had enough to whacking the programs we've cut to the bear bones. not only has he offended the united states marine corps and families who lost their loved ones,'s also a hypocrite when you think about what he said just may of last year. so, i don't see this as a clumsy statement, i see this as a deliberate thing that he has said. much the same as when he accused mitt romney of certain things from the senate floor. harry reid has to be called responsible for the statement that he made, and as i've said, he needs to go over to the marine barracks before a formation of marines, standing with the commandant and give an apology and not just have some spokes people from his office do it, cowardly. >> i will say that, you know, that it's with his statement that was issued by his office, if it's-- i find it difficult to say to think it was sort after clumsy statement that he made on the senate floor, other than maybe if his staff was just serving, i
given flexibility to the department of defense only, we expect the senate to be more proud in its discretion. the senate has also released the federal fiscal year, 14, budget proposal and we are likely to see these levels of funding with the sequestration cuts continuing through the next year, so we have to pay close attention to the impacts on transportation, again the highway trust funds accounts are protected from these cuts, but there is general fund support of highway trust funds activities including the new starts program, we are monitoring to see any potential impacts to central subway, for example. and whether the federal government, will be looking to get the older, new starts projects off the books and putting funding on those projects first, or whether they will be doing across the board, cuts to all of the new starts programs. so we are looking forward to hearing what has come out of washington, from the legislative conference this week. and also, continuing to monitor the activities with mta and other partners. at this point, i will welcome mark watts to speak to the
